Gluten-free flapjacks tips

Here are some tips to help you make the most out of my gluten-free flapjacks recipe:

Avoid Cross-Contamination

If you’re preparing gluten-free flapjacks in a kitchen that is not entirely gluten-free, take precautions to avoid cross-contamination.

Use separate utensils, cutting boards, and cooking surfaces to prevent gluten from coming into contact with the ingredients.

When possible do not use wooden utensils, cutting boards, and rolling pins that are used with gluten.

Label items

Consider buying two of certain shared food items like honey, and butter, dedicate one, and label it as gluten-free.

Cooking oil

Use separate oils to fry gluten-free foods as they will become contaminated and not safe to eat.

Personal Hygiene

Always wash your hands with hot water and soap before you handle any ingredients.
